Elon Musk Takes Shot at Biden Administration: They're 'Not the Friendliest'
The Biden administration is a 'little biased or something'
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took another shot at Joe Biden, accusing him of being biased against electric-car maker Tesla.
Musk also said the administration is "controlled by unions" before adding they're "not the friendliest."
Neon Nettle reported earlier this month that Musk mocked Biden for failing to mention SpaceX's historic space flight.
A user asked Musk on Twitter:
"The President of the United States has refused to even acknowledge the four newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude."
"What's your theory on why that is?"
"He's still sleeping," Musk responded.
Musk was recently asked during the Code Conference in California about the tweet.
The Telsa CEO responded by saying that Biden is "not the friendliest," pointing specifically to an electric vehicle event that the White House hosted last month — one which Tesla was not invited to.
"Biden held this EV summit — didn't invite Tesla," Musk said.
"Invited GM, Ford, Chrysler, and UAW [United Auto Workers Union]."
"An EV summit at the White House."
"Didn't mention Tesla once, and praised GM and Ford for leading the EV revolution," Musk said.
Musk then added the Biden administration is a "little biased or something,… just not the friendliest administration… Seems to be controlled by unions."
Last month, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked if Tesla was not invited to the event because its employees are not unionized.
"These are the three largest employers of the United Auto Workers, so I'll let you draw your own conclusion," Psaki responded.
